Writing an essay is part of our school days. Whether we like it or not, we are going to do that kind of stuff. It’s part of it. Whatever course we are taking in college, whether we are a high school student or an elementary, a simple or not, we are going to write that one. That’s somehow one of the requirements that we need to accomplish. Well, let’s admit it. We all know how to write an essay. But we cannot deny the fact that not everyone of us can write an effective essay. This article will talk about the tips that you can use on how you are going to write an effective one. This is going to be helpful, especially for those students who are having a hard time doing this kind of stuff.
Choose a Topic
This is the first step, but at the same time, this is the hardest step. I know a lot of students were having a hard time choosing a topic that they are going to write. Some of you were given a specific topic to write, and some of you are not. But it will be convenient for you if you are the one who’s going to choose your topic. You can freely choose whatever you want. I suggest, you should choose something that you are passionate about. You should choose something that you are knowledgeable about. In that case, it will be easy for you to gather resources. It will be easy for you to write something about it, since you know what you are doing and you know what you are writing. But just in case you are given a specific topic to write, you’ll need to allot time reading articles and reading studies that are related to that.
Make an Outline
Making an outline is quite easy because you are just going to jot down your thoughts. You are just going to organize it first, which one is going to be the first one, the second one and so on and so forth. You need to make sure that each and every outline that you are going to list down is related to each other. You need to make sure that they have a connection. That’s one of the things that will make your essay a good one. It is necessary for you to write your outline first before doing anything else for you to know what your essay looks like. This is where you are going to plan the flow of your work so it is really necessary to have one.
Consider your Target Audience
A lot of people were not considering this step, but for me it is really necessary. You need to consider your target audience when you are writing. You need to consider the people who are going to read your work. Whether it is your professor, your friends, your followers, you need to consider them. A lot of you consider your work good just because it is good enough for you. But it is good for those who are going to read it? Is it going to be helpful for them? That’s the main reason why you should consider them. They are the one who’s going to judge whether your work is effective or not. They are the one who’s going to say whether it is helpful or not. They really have a role when you are writing one.
Write an Introduction
It is the most important part of an essay. This is like the opening part of the book. It depends on it whether the readers will continue reading it or not. This should be a good one. This should not be boring. This should catch your reader’s attention. It is not really necessary to make it long. It could be a few sentences. You need to make sure that it could attract people to read your work. You can just simply start at a shocking information, quotation from a story or quotation from a well-known person, something like that. This is the most important part so you should always make it a good one.
Write a Body
This is where you are going to elaborate those things that you jot down. Each of your main points should be clearly discussed. Basically, you are just going to start with your main point. You just need to provide some supporting details and some back up statements. You need to make sure that you clearly describe or you clearly stated your main point. It is not really necessary to be that long. A lot of people were thinking that just because your essay is long also means that it is also a good one. But that is not always the case. As long as you have proven your all your points, as long as you clearly stated everything, that’s when we are going to consider your essay a really good one.
Write a Conclusion
This is not an essay if you don’t have this part. This is where you are going to sum up everything that you discuss. This is where you are going to summarize everything that you have discussed and your overall point of the discussion. It should give your idea about those things. Usually, it is one-paragraph long. Simply review your main point and everything is good.
Read and Revised
Right after the conclusion, you might think that you are done. But you’re not. You need to read it again and make sure that you are doing the right thing. Pay attention even to those small details that you have. You should not be content with what you’ve written. You can make it better. You just need to review what you have written and see what are the things that you can still improve. Reread your paper and if you are contented with that and you think that’s the best thing that you can do, then that’s it. You can submit it.
Writing an essay is not that easy. You need to pay attention to every detail that you are going to put in, if you really wanted to write an effective one. I hope this article will help you a lot. I hope this can help you to write an essay that you need to do.
